05/24/2020

Spring is here, and with it comes baby wildlife season as well as an increased chance of people coming face-to-face with newborn animals, especially baby deer (Fawns). It is important to differentiate between a situation for a young animal that is normal, and one where intervention is needed, because a baby’s natural parents are always the best option to raise that animal and give it the best chance of normal behavior and survival. Getting involved where help is not needed can be very detrimental to the health of these wildlife babies.

Below are some general tips if you happen to encounter this situation:

· Most wildlife mothers hide their young and return periodically to feed and care for them. If the parent hasn’t returned in several hours—up to a day—then there is cause for alarm. But don’t assume they haven’t returned just because you haven’t seen them. Mother rabbits, for example, only visit dens sites to feed their young at dusk and dawn. Ninety-nine percent of “Fawn” calls do not involve orphans. Often does (mother deer) will not return to their fawns until well after dark. Keep yourself and pets far away from the fawn. It may take a good 24 hours for a doe to feel safe enough to return to her fawn. If a mother were to return to her fawn prematurely, she might risk leading a predator directly to her fawn.

· Unless the animal is injured, clearly in distress, or you know for a fact the parent is dead, don’t assume the animal is orphaned. The vast majority of time, the best solution is to just leave animals alone. Chances are mom is nearby. She is probably just off feeding—or too frightened to return because you, your pet, or your child is too close.

· When mistakenly taken from their natural environment, young animals will miss the chance to learn crucial survival and behavioral skills from their parents, including where and what to eat, and how to escape from predators. Dogs, cats, raccoons, construction, etc. are not reasons for fawn removal. These are things that deer must encounter on a daily basis. A mother deer will move her fawn away from danger if given the chance.

· Do not touch the fawn or any baby animal. This could cause the mother to reject it. If the fawn has already been "handled", wipe the fawn off with a clean towel rubbed with dirt, put on a clean pair of gloves, and return the fawn to the site of origin. If the fawn has wandered into someone's garage or other precarious position, gently coax the fawn out or move to a quiet, nearby site while wearing gloves. Do not move the fawn too far.

· Fawns are born late May through the end of June, with the peak number born in early June. Mother deer often give birth at night in areas (such as people's front yards) which may seem perfectly safe at night but differ drastically during daylight hours.

· For the first 5 days after birth, fawns will not run when approached. Instead, they will exhibit "freeze behavior". They lie still when approached, even permitting handling with little resistance. From the 7th day on, fawns will exhibit "flight behavior" when approached. By one month of age fawns venture out to browse with their mothers.

· If you want a photo, take one from a distance! Use your zoom to get a close-up, but don’t approach a baby animal too closely just for a photo. Doing so can be extremely stressful for the animal. Keep pets & children away from the area to allow the mother to return.

If intervention is necessary please contact the Plainsboro Township Police Department 609-799-2333 http://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/bornwild.htm

The Plainsboro Township Police Department would like to inform our township residents, community partners, friends and social media followers of an increase in telephonic bail scams and frauds. There has been a noticeable increase in telephonic scammers posing as lawyers, legal authority figures and acquaintances who are requesting bail money to be sent to them to free the intended targets relatives/friends from jail. The actors advise the targets that they can free their relatives/friends if they can provide cash, wire money, and/or provide personal banking information, etc. The bottom line is bail does not work that way, and numerous persons throughout the US have been victimized by this fraudulent activity.

We urge everyone to be alert to this illegal fraudulent activity and urge you to take the following basic precautions.

• If someone claims they are calling on behalf of your relative/friend who is in jail, it is a scam. Hang up immediately.
• Beware of solicitations asking you to send money anywhere.
• Do not believe statements that you need to immediately pay money to free someone in jail/prison
• Do not be rushed into sending money by a sense of urgency or threats.
• Relatives/friends who may be incarcerated will call you themselves, so if someone else calls you, it is a scam.
• Do not send money or provide personal identifying information to possible fraudulent callers.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Plainsboro's Local Response to Coronavirus/COVID-19

Together we are facing a truly uneasy time as a result of the global Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic. It has touched us all, either directly or indirectly. For those of you struck by this virus, our thoughts are with you, your families and your friends.

The township’s first priority is always to ensure public safety and is pleased that all police, first responder and health emergency and medical services have continued to function effectively during this period. In keeping with our first priority, even before the virus reached our township, Plainsboro officials and staff began working on a plan to coordinate resources in an effort to mitigate the impact of the virus on our community and the township workforce and services you rely on. The first step taken was the development of a working task force consisting of department directors, key representatives of the Plainsboro Office of Emergency Management (OEM) and representatives of the school district.

As the impact of the virus reached the surrounding areas, township staff continued working collaboratively with the state OEM and the Middlesex County Health Department and began following operational and safety guidance from various governmental agencies including the New Jersey Department of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). By the time the virus reached our hometown, officials and staff were participating in weekly conference calls with the Governor and his office and representatives of the County of Middlesex, Penn Medicine Princeton Health hospital and others to receive timely updated information. Each day we have monitored public safety and health services to ensure these services continue to address the community’s needs.

The township established the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Bulletin Board on our website as the principal means to communicate the actions and status of the emergency. The Bulletin Board, located at www.plainsboronj.com, continues to be updated daily and provides valuable information such as the total number of cases in the township (as reported by the Middlesex County Health department), building and facility closure status and additional resource information.

We urge you to visit the www.plainsboronj.com website and its many helpful links to other health, safety and community services information. The township has established a temporary special email – [email protected] for Coronavirus/COVID-19 and general municipal operations questions.

“On behalf of the Township Committee and the Plainsboro community” Mayor Cantu expressed, “thanks to all of the service providers; especially the police, fire and rescue squad(s), medical professionals and municipal staff that are doing an outstanding job and deserve our acknowledgement and support.”

As we continue to face these challenges, the Township Committee remains committed to keeping the health and safety of our community and workforce a top priority.

Stay safe and healthy.
